think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of, they don't know that they're hitting, they haven't gotten a lot of press attention, obama never talks about the trillion dollars of tax increases starting this year for obamacare. so 1.6 plus 1.5, that's a $3 trillion dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passed. and, of course, it never balances because they turn around and spend another, um, more money, hundreds of billions more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. so they do more spending with more taxes. what the ryan budget does and why i think it's very interesting for the republican future is that it reform
principle. taken back. i said this is in our math classes? in my public high school outside of chicago, paul krugman wrote our economics textbook. he writes a majority of the economics textbooks in this country. so it's so important that we reach out to our younger audiences and fight back against this progressive aggression into our schools which makes me so excited to introduce our next speaker. calista gingrich is writing children's books that teach american values, capitalism and history the right way, not the liberal, doctored way. it's so important that we reach out to our young people using even chored illustrations. if they can't read, read to them. because if we don't teach them history, the liberals will for us, and do you want the liberals teaching your children history? >> no! >> so, ladies and gentlemen, i'm honored to introduce calista gingrich. [applause] ♪ ♪ >> thank you. thank you, charlie, and thank you for that warm welcome. it's great to be here at the 40th annual cpac conference. ever since the first conference in 1973, cpac has been a gathering of ideas, activists,
and political ally paul ryan, tirelessly barn stormed the country in an effort to recruit and promote candidates, push the party message and earn votes with ticket-topper mitt romney. then came last november. remys did hold on to the u.s. house of representatives and majority of gubernatorial seats among other win, yet given the fiery and sometimes ugly blame game, mr. priebus might have been wished for the days he was recognized as a rising star all while taking the republican party by storm. he's been working on campaigns since he was 16 and wound through the wisconsin republican party ranks and up to the rnc. he is proud to be a lifelong green pay packers fan. -- green bay packers fan. we're told he played a mean game of softball during his time working on his law degree at the university of miami. a time to reflect and look forward happens in any party that loses, but it doesn't lessen the sting when you're the recipient. mr. priebus has been working on a way to rally the faithful and plot a new strategy for the midterm election in 2014 and presidential contest in 2016. one of the silver lin
. the republican-led house, by contrast, senator paul ryan and his team has a plan that they'll vote on today that has passed -- will balance the budget. and they've passed a budget every year. and our colleagues in the sena senate, while refusing to pass a budget, have delighted in complaining about the leadership and the responsible action of the house by blaming everything they can think of and more on unkind paul ryan, who wants to push old fox off the cliff. and that's not true. he's got good plans. he's got growth plans. but what i -- i would say to you is, this congress, this senate has done nothing while being critical of everyone else. last year, there -- we've had several budgets come up and i voted for several of them. my democratic colleagues have voted for not one. they have voted against the ryan budget. they voted against the president's budget. they voted against the toomey budget. they voted against the rand paul budget. voted against them all. but yet they don't seem to be in the least bit hesitant just to attack everybody else. so i think we have a moral duty to balance the
it and if you do, we're going to attack you, paul ryan, because you have a creative, insightful way to preserve medicare and make it more healthy in the future and put it on a sound path, we're going to say you're trying to destroy medicare. he's got a plan to save medicare. bring it into the 21st the -- te 20th century --, 21st century. ought to be discussed openly and fairly, not demonized. that's the level of debate we're in here. so in private we talk to our colleagues and they say yes, we need to make changes, rereally do. well, when? and when the paper is printed, the budget is printed, it's not there. it's not there. so there's no reform of the fundamental drivers of our debt. we also know that last year we spent $750 billion on 83 government social welfare programs, means-tested programs. that is, if your income is below a certain level, the government deems you worthy of subsidy of some kind. now, these 83 programs, many of them are duplicative, there's not a coherent focus to them that endeavors to help the people really other than giving them money. giving them aid. there's not a suf
's discussion offering an amendment on behalf of myself and senator paul, senator rubio, senator toomey, senator mcconnell that will redirect the $14.5 billion we spend on behalf of 11 million children, and this is the way we would do it. we would simply pin $1,300 and be their share of that money, each of those children, and let the money follow the child to the school they attend, any accredited school, public or private. now, here's the problem. in a contentious washington world this is a problem that seems to have a broad amount of agreement from the left and from the right. this $14.5 billion, which is appropriated expressly to help these 11 million children, isn't getting to them. it's ending up other places. it's distributed by a complicated federal forel la that's generally -- formula that's generally based on the number low-incom of low-income n a district and the average per-pupil expenditure in a state. here's what happens. what happens the money largely follows the teachers' salaries, and to get right to the bottom line, the children in wealthier districts are usually taught by teach
. well, paul ryan repeals but he doesn't replace. and you know what? we don't need to have it replaced. we need to keep the affordable care act in place, moving america in the right direction and helping health care be affordable both to families and to business. we cannot allow the ryan budget to stand. but just being against an idea isn't good enough. and this is why we support the murray -- the murray budget, because she preserves the affordable care act and she continues to emphasize those reforms that we made in quality and prevention and integrateive services. we know how through those quality initiatives we can save money and save lives. others will also speak about medicare. i cannot believe that we're going to replace medicare with a voucher. a voucher and a promise. so let's get rid of -- not deal with the health care needs of the elderly, let's get rid of the financial needs of the federal government. so we'd rather protect billionaires than protect senior citizens. i think we've got our priorities wrong. others will speak to medicare. i want to go to medicaid. and i want to
exactly who her, but there were several there, invited to speak with rumsfeld, paul, and rice. i remember asking him, and i was conscious of that that evening when i saw the beginning of the war. i ask them to sell certain argue that the iraqis have these weapons of mass direction. and the answer for all three of them was its of the question of tosser we are. we know why they have them. that impressed me because these people lead known for a long time. would you say you know the summit has something it means to me you know. this other question a probability but a statement of certain to cause a -- statement of certitude. still occurred to me to pursue the subject. i asked him if you know that they have weapons of mass destruction, what is the order for the use and particularly nuclear weapons? because obviously if they have them and they're ready to use them, authorizing either divisional commanders or brigade commanders or whoever else to have the possibility to execute the initiation and their use. and here the answer was perplexing. they said to we don't know. about the surprising busi
. paul harvey, who got his start in broadcasting in montana, said it best in this poem, "so god made a farmer." "god looked down on the earth he created and said i need a caretaker for this world i made. and so god made a farmer. so as part of trying to bridge that divide between washington, d.c. and montana, i honor the strong legacy of farming and ranching montanans in montana by celebrating national ag day. those montana families involved in agriculture is so much more than a livelihood. it is a way of life. i'm honored to represent so many ranchers, so many farmers from montana who have dedicated their life to the land, providing the service that everyone in the world benefits from. i yield the floor. a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from kansas. mr. moran: mr. president, thank you. the bill that we are debating, the so-called continuing resolution, spends slightly more than $1 trillion between now and the end of the fiscal year. and as those who were either on the floor or watching a few moments ago discovered, the opportunity to amend this bill in ev
